Shonaleigh is one of Europe’s leading storytellers. Having learned the Drut’syla tradition from the age of four, she carries thousands of oral stories from the Jewish tradition and shares their magic, mystery and wisdom with audiences around the world. She is a living tradition holder. “You hear people talking about the storytelling revival, but in Jewish culture it never died. I lived and breathed the tales during my childhood, unaware that this was anything unusual.”


"An ancient warlord is looking for three objects that will give him possession of all the kingdoms of the world. The Sapphire Staff that can make the waters of the world part. A Snakeskin Cloak that smells of the Apples of the Garden of Eden and the Book Of All Things which contains the song of the sun and the thoughts of the rain. Only two can stop him … a young man who’s Grandfather was cursed to be half eagle half man … and a young woman who holds the last secret of Eve’s three beautiful daughters!"


Tellers, Tales and Tradition is a magnificent chance to get to know this oral tradition that flourished during a vast amount of years in the ‘Low Countries’. Production House The Storyboat offers the complete cycles of the Drut’syla tradition to audiences in and around The Netherlands in three day sessions every spring and fall in the city of Zwolle. information and program of all TTT-events
